Why Oral-B Toothpaste?

Best Toothpaste for Whitening


Ask any of your closest friends if they want their teeth to be whiter, and a vast majority of them will say yes. Ask them again about what their personal favorite whitening toothpaste is, and they will each give you a different answer. Having a whiter smile is more than just buying any toothpaste with the words “whitening” on the tube. In truth, searching for an effective whitening toothpaste can be a challenge if you don’t know where to look or what to look for. When looking for an effective whitening toothpaste, it’s also important to consider any additional benefits your toothpaste can offer. These include reducing plaque, tartar control, fresh breath, and more. If you’re not sure which oral care benefit is most important for you, simply speak to your dental professional about your unique needs.

How does Whitening Toothpaste work?

Did you know that 50% of people first look at the smile when meeting a new person? So, what criteria should you follow to find an effective whitening toothpaste? Here are a few examples to help narrow your search for the best whitening toothpaste option for you.

Stain Removal: Stain removal whitens teeth by using physical and chemical actions such as mechanical stain disruption and chemical stain disruption from ingredients such as sodium hexametaphosphate. These combined actions help to disrupt and destroy the stain on the surface of the enamel, exposing a cleaner, whiter surface. Several whitening products base their benefits on these types of actions.

Stain prevention: Chemical Stain Prevention is possible through phosphate technologies, such as pyrophosphates and polyphosphate. Any toothpaste or rinse technology that also helps prevent the formation of tartar (calculus) is stain preventing, as tartar can contribute to extrinsic stain buildup. Certain toothpastes that include pyrophosphate and polyphosphate technologies may be used as a preventative measure against buildup and staining.

Choosing a Whitening Toothpaste for You

So, what additional attributes can you look for when selecting the best whitening toothpaste for you? Some whitening toothpastes deliver a clean that doesn’t just brighten up your teeth but also help keep your teeth and gums in good condition.

Strong Teeth: Enamel fortifying toothpastes may contain stannous fluoride, a key ingredient that delivers anti-cavity benefits.

Tartar control: Tartar-control toothpastes may contain pyrophosphate which helps to keep tartar from forming on teeth. Advanced toothpaste formulations contain sodium hexametaphosphate, which helps prevent tartar and stain formation.

Best Oral-B Whitening Toothpaste Options

When it comes to Oral-B toothpastes, one of our best whitening solutions is Oral-B 3D White Whitening Therapy Toothpaste. This lineup of toothpastes can help polish away surface stains, strengthen and protects enamel.

To further promote a brighter smile, consider switching to an electric toothbrush like the Oral-B iO. Electic toothbrushes remove 100% more plaque than a regular manual brush to help keep your teeth clean and gums in good condition. When paired with an Oral-B Whitening Toothpaste, the Oral-B iO set to “Whitening Mode” may help remove even more surface stains from teeth to reveal a more brilliant smile.

Now, the moment of truth. You’ve done the research and narrowed your list, so which toothpaste will be your whitening toothpaste?
